Proposed trip to see the ex-Edmonton Christie at Paul Kirner's Music Palace, Porth

We are organising a trip to Wales to see the ex-Edmonton Christie, which was formally owned by our Chapter, and is now installed at Paul Kirner's Music Palace.  We hope the coach trip will take place on Saturday 4th April 2020.

Chapter Members will have priority when booking opens, and once finalised the details will be posted here and in our bi-monthly newsletter.  The trip will be subsidised for Chapter Members, so if you wish to join it is only £10 per annum and full details are here.

Help needed

We need help and support in the following ways:

  • Chapter trustees.  You would need to be registered as a trustee of the charity, be able to support the organisation and attend comittee meetings.
  • Woking concert set up and take down.  We would particularly welcome local people who can regularly help with this as none of the committee live in Surrey, let alone Woking!
  • Woking concert raffle.  Organise obtaining good quality prizes, sell tickets at the concerts, help with the draw and cash up at the end of the evening.

If you think you can help or wish to learn more then please contact one of the ATOS trustees who's details you can find here.
